The Soul 6f Sharansky

His wife might be the comedienne, but President Bush bas got some serious stones, saying:

"We will not repeat the mistakes of other generations, appeasing or excusing tyranny, and sacrificing freedom in the vain pursuit of stability. We have learned our lesson; no one's liberty is expendable. In the long run, our security and true stability depend on the freedom of others."

Bush singled out the 1945 Yalta agreement signed by Roosevelt in a speech opening a four-day trip focused on Monday's celebration in Moscow of the 60th anniversary of Nazi Germany's defeat.

So...FDR gave away too much at Malta -- the emperor has no clothes -- the President this President has finally said it.

It is refreshing to see a principled, philosophical President. And even more so when his first principle is individual freedom. A whole lotta shortcomings can be overlooked when lumped in with just this one virtue.

Yup. Steel tariffs seem pretty small in comparison...
